Packaging Component and Cloning
« on: March 28, 2017, 03:57:40 pm »
Hello fellow EA users
A question I have for this morning
I have created a Packaging component with some nice content.
Now, i would like to make a new version of it so i went to the new feature of Sparx 13, cloning.
The Cloning is a nice feature, unfortunately works only in some cases, you can clone Archimate packages, but do not try to clone BPMN or sequence diagrams, will not work (or the outcome is terrible)
But my more pressing issue is the Packaging component (package).
When you clone it, it will create a new package with the standard package icon, not the fancy pink component type of icon.
Now, is there a way to change the new, cloned package to a Packaging Component (package)? Not just on a diagram, also in the project browser.
I can change type of diagram or an object but not on a package.
It is even possible? Anyone?

Changing the type is not possible. You may want to submit a bug report.
